Louisiana Tech Bulldogs 8-4 (6-1 WAC)

About The Game

Louisiana Tech (8-4, 6-1 WAC) heads to its first bowl game since 2008 after accepting a bid to the 2011 San Diego County Poinsettia Bowl on Nov. 26. The Bulldogs, champions of the Western Athletic Conference, will face No. 15 TCU (10-2, 7-0 MWC). The Horned Frogs won the Mountain West Conference title for the third consecutive year and are ranked as high as 15th in the nation (coaches poll) while the AP has the Horned Frogs ranked 16th. The game marks just one of four bowl games this year that will see two conference champions face each other.

About the Series

Despite the two campuses being only 289 miles apart, the two teams have never met before this year’s Poinsettia Bowl match-up. Instead, the two schools will face each other for the first time over 1,600 miles away from Tech’s Ruston campus in San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers.

The Coaches

Louisiana Tech: Sonny Dykes is in his second season at Louisiana Tech and as a head coach in his career. He is 13-11 all-time after recording a 5-7 mark in his inaugural year and guiding the Bulldogs to bowl eligibility and a WAC Championship in his second year at the helm of Tech’s program. This season, Dykes has led a resurgent Tech team from a 1-4 start to seven consecutive wins and a conference championship. TCU: Gary Patteron is in his 11th season as head coach of the Horned Frogs and his 14th season overall at TCU. Since being named the head coach, Patterson has guided TCU to a 108-30 record and this year’s Poinsettia Bowl will be Patterson’s 11th bowl appearance in 12 years and third Poinsettia Bowl appearance overall. Patterson has a 6-4 mark in bowl games including TCU’s 21-19 win over Wisconsin in last year’s Rose Bowl.

Last Time Out

Louisiana Tech 44, New Mexico State 0; Joe Aillet Stadium, Ruston, La.; Nov. 26, 2011 It was a fitting end to a championship run. Louisiana Tech’s defense recorded its first shutout at home since the mid-1990s, the Bulldog offense used a balanced attack led by walk-on running back Hunter Lee and the special teams unit added a score of its own as Tech blanked New Mexico State 44-0 Saturday afternoon under rain-soaked conditions at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the win, Tech (8-4, 6-1 WAC) won the Western Athletic Conference regular season title for the first time since 2001 and earned a trip to the San Diego Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21 to face either TCU or Boise State. Heading into the day tied with Nevada in the league standings, Tech’s lopsided win parlayed with the Wolf Pack’s 21-17 loss at Utah State gave the Bulldogs the outright league championship belt. Following the final gun, WAC Commissioner Karl Benson presented the championship trophy to the team while Poinsettia Bowl Chairman Bruce Binkowsky extended the invite to the postseason game in San Diego.

#15 TCU

This season will mark the sixth (Division I) bowl appearance for Louisiana Tech. The 2008 Independence Bowl marked the fifth bowl appearance and only the third since the program joined the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 1989. After the 17-10 win over NIU, Tech is now 2-2-1 all-time in bowl games. It also marked the fourth appearance in the Independence Bowl for LA Tech (1977, 1978, 1990).

Entering this year’s Poinsettia Bowl game, both Louisiana Tech and TCU hold the nation’s fourth-longest winning streak with seven consecutive wins. Only #1 LSU (14), Arkansas State (9) and Northern Illinois (8) enter the 2011 bowl season with longer winning streaks. Considering Arkansas State and Northern Illinois face each other in a bowl game, both Louisiana Tech and TCU will be battling for more than just a bowl win but to carry one of the nation’s longest winning streaks into the 2012 season.

WAC Finishes

With Louisiana Tech’s 44-0 win over New Mexico State on Nov. 26, the Bulldogs have clinched their second WAC Championship overall and first since 2001. Louisiana Tech finished 6-1 in conference play, winning the final six games The win against New Mexico State clinched the program’s 23rd conference title in school history and the second Western Athletic Conference Championship since entering the league in 2001. Louisiana Tech finished the 2008 season tied for second place in the Western Athletic Conference standings, the program’s second-best finish in eight years as a member.

Record Breakdown

This year’s senior class has been impressive over four years of action and have achieved something no other FBS Louisiana Team has accomplished - reaching multiple bowl games. With a bid to the SDCCU Poinsettia Bowl already accepted, LA Tech’s senior class is the first to play in multiple bowl games since the program moved up to the Division I-A/FBS ranks in 1989. This year’s senior class also played in the 2008 Independence Bowl, a 17-10 win over Northern Illinois.

Game UNIVERSITY Notes

Impressive Senior class

Overall, only the teams in 1977 and 1978 have played in multiple bowl games for Louisiana Tech as the Bulldogs played in the Independence Bowl in both years. Tech defeated Louisville, 24-14, in the 1977 Independence Bowl and fell to East Carolina, 35-13, in the 1978 Independence Bowl.

Scoring On a Return: The Tech Variations

Louisiana Tech enters the 2011 Poinsettia Bowl having scored a touchdown on four different return variations: an interception return, a punt return a kickoff return and a fumble return. LA Tech is one of only seven teams in the country to achieve that feat this year, joining LSU, BYU, Houston, Florida, Rutgers and Idaho. Moreover, eight of Tech’s touchdowns this season have come from a return score, matching Idaho for the secondmost number of return scores among the seven that have scored on four different types of returns.

Tech Clinches Bowl Berth with Win at Nevada

As Louisiana Tech rallied for an improbable 24-20 win at Nevada, the Bulldogs clinched a spot in a bowl game. With the Western Athletic Conferece’s bowl agreement, the top two teams in the league are guaranteed a bid to play in a bowl game. While there is still a scenario where Tech, Nevada and Utah State could finish the year tied for first, Tech’s wins over Nevada and Utah State give the Bulldogs the tiebreaker over both teams, securing Tech’s first bowl game since the 2008 season.

Tech Wins Five Straight Road Games for First Time since 197375 With Tech’s 24-20 win at Nevada on Nov. 19, Louisiana Tech recorded its fifth straight road win. That marks the longest road winning streak for the Bulldog program since winning 11 straight road games from 1973-75.

Tech Wins Seven Straight for First Time Since 1974

With its 44-0 rout of New Mexico State to clinch the WAC title on Nov. 26, Louisiana Tech recorded its seventh-consecutive win marking the longest winning streak for the Bulldogs since the 1974 season. That year Tech won 11 straight games before falling in the NCAA Division II semifinals to Central Michigan. Maxie Lambright guided Tech to an 11-1 record that season. Despite losing in the playoffs, Tech was named the national champion by one major press outlet (UPI).

Spike Dykes first guided Texas Tech on Dec. 20, 1986 in the Independence Bowl. However, while Spike’s Red Raider squad lost to Ole Miss, 20-17, Sonny’s Bulldog team toughed out a 20-6 win over Grambling.

Benchmark Set at 300?

Louisiana Tech allowed over 300 yards rushing on Sept. 5, 2009 at Auburn and that standard can be a fairly accurate predictor for the outcome of games. Since 2000, LA Tech is 1-12 when allowing teams to rush for 300-plus yards with the lone win coming over Nevada in 2001. LA Tech has not allowed opponents to post back-to-back 300-yard rushing games since 2000 when Auburn ran for 301 yards on Oct. 21, 2000 and Miami (Fla.) ran for 331 on Oct. 28, 2000.

Louisiana Tech faces a unique non-conference schedule this fall with three non-WAC games in the state of Mississippi: Sept. 3 at Southern Miss, Sept. 24 at Mississippi State and Nov. 12 at Ole Miss. Research into this scheduling aberration has not turned up any other FBS program that has played three non-conference games in a single state (not its own). That research also indicates LA Tech is the first FBS program since San Jose State in 1999 to play three road games in a single state that is not its own, but those were conference games. That year, the Spartans played games at TCU (L, 42-0), at Rice (L, 497) and at UTEP (L, 42-26).

Stability Equals Success

Entering the 2011 season, Louisiana Tech was only one of 14 FBS schools (out of 120) to have not made a change on its coaching staff from the previous season. Of those 14 schools, 10 of those reached a bowl game during the 2010 season. As we wrap up the 2011 campaign, 11 of those 14 schools (including Louisiana Tech) will play in postseason bowl games.

This accomplishment of academic excellence is par for the course in Ruston as Tech has consis- Team tently proven itself as an academic institution of *Arkansas the highest regard, especially when it comes to Army student-athletes. *East Carolina Among Tech’s many laudable academic honors: ► Last year, Tech recorded its highest four-year graduation rate ever, ranking No. 1 in the state of Louisiana among FBS public institutions and second among WAC schools. ► Tech boasts one of the best retention rates (84.5) in the state of Louisiana, which tops the averages of both the LSU System (79.3) and the UL System (77.7). ► Tech has had more than 800 student-athletes earn Academic All-WAC honors since joining the league in 2001, including more than 80 this past year. ► Tech has the highest graduation rate (53.2%) in the UL System. ► Tech also saw eight of its 16 NCAA sanctioned programs record their highest multi-year APR rates ever while four of the programs registered their highest single year APR score ever. Three of the programs also earned a perfect 1,000 score on the single year rate. All 16 of Louisiana Tech’s NCAA sanctioned programs will be penalty free in 2011-12.

Sonny Days Are Here Again

22

Last season marked the first year of the Sonny Dykes’ tenure at Louisiana Tech and the first-year head coach guided the Bulldogs to the verge of bowl eligibility entering the last game of the season. He was one of very few of the 22 first-year head coaches last season to improve upon his team’s conference record in his first year at the helm. The son of legendary Texas Tech coach Spike Dykes, he is no stranger to success on the field having won at stops in the Pac-10, SEC and Big 12 en route to being named LA Tech’s head coach. Since 1940, only three other LA Tech coaches have posted winning records in their first season at the helm of the Bulldogs including Joe Aillet (6-4, 1940), Gary Crowton (6-5, 1996) and Jack Bicknell (8-3, 1999).

Family Tradition

Thomas Graham is back for his fifth year with the Bulldog football team, but he is no longer the team’s deep snapper. Graham has joined the strength and conditioning staff. As the team’s deep snapper for four years, he continued a family tradition as his brother, Matt, was the deep snapper for LA Tech four straight years before him. The Graham brothers come from a football family has their grandfather Bill Graham, who is the Director of Special Events at Tech, played football for Florida State (and was roommates with Burt Reynolds) at running back and their father, Randy Graham, played rover back football at Missouri. The youngest of the Graham brothers, Gantt, is also with the program as a student worker on the equipment staff.

Family Tradition - Part II

Redshirt freshman walk-on Hayden Slack is the third generation of his family to play football at Louisiana Tech. His father, Terry, played at LA Tech played from 1974-77 and his uncle, Jay, played at Tech from 1984-87. Going back one more generation in the Slack family, J.W. Slack (Hayden’s grandfather) played at Tech from 1957-59.

Aunt Was National Champ

Redshirt junior linebacker Dusty Rust is not the first in his family to play ball for Louisiana Tech. Except his relative did not play football. Rust’s aunt Rita Rust played basketball for the Lady Techsters from 1979-82, playing on two national championship teams.

Quinton Patton Moving up the Charts

In just one season at Louisiana Tech, receiver Quinton Patton is already making his mark on the program. Patton has recorded 1,135 receiving yards to date in 2011, ranking seventh in school history for receiving yards in a season. Patton is only 118 yards away from matching Chad Mackey’s 1,253 receiving yards in a season (ranked sixth). Former Biletnikoff Award winner Troy Edwards set the school record for receiving yards in a season with 1,996 yards caught in 1998.

By comparison, below is a list of select offensive categories from 2006 and 2007 at Troy, where Franklin was once the offensive coordinator. The chart also lists offensive categories from 2007 and 2008 at Arizona, where Dykes was the offensive coordinator, along with the pair’s first year at Louisiana Tech. The increase in offensive output in Franklin’s offense with the Trojans and Dykes’ offense with the Wildcats shows some of the potential that Louisiana Tech brings to the gridiron this fall.

Cameron Named Week 10 Manning Award Star of the week

Cameron-to-Patton for Fifth-Longest Play in Tech History

In Louisiana Tech’s Oct. 29 win over San Jose State (38-28), Colby Cameron threw a 90yard touchdown pass to Quinton Patton in the second quarter to put Tech up 17-14, a lead the Bulldogs would not relinquish the rest of the game. That play is the fifth-longest play in school history and the longest since Matt Kubik tossed a 93-yard touchdown pass to Tramissian Davis against SMU in 2004.

As Louisiana Tech entered the fourth quarter at Utah State trailing 17-14, the Bulldogs rallied for 10 unanswered points to claim a 24-17 win. That marked the first time since Nov. 1, 2008 that Louisiana Tech has entered a fourth quarter trailing and still claimed a win. The last time it happened, Tech rallied for a 38-35 win over Fresno State in Ruston.

Cameron, a redshirt junior, was 19-for-33 for 376 yards with no interceptions SCoring and four touchdowns. He was ninth in the nation in passing during Week 10, first among 1. 339 Josh Scobee 2. 279 Marty Kent Louisiana quarterbacks and first among WAC quarterbacks by 86 yards.

Finally Rallying in the Fourth Quarter

General Patton Leading the Charge

Receiver Quinton Patton had a breakout day on Sept. 10 and he continues to lead the Tech receiving corps. Patton enters Saturday’s game ranked 17th in the nation in receiving yards per game, averaging 98.44 per contest. On Sept. 10 against Central Arkansas he recorded 211 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Tech’s 48-42 overtime win. That performance ranks tied for 10th in school history matching Rod Foppe’s 211 receiving yards against North Texas in 1977 and Tommy Spinks 211 receiving yards against UL-Lafayette in 1968. Patton’s 211 receiving yards also marked the most for a Tech receiver since Delwyn Daigre recorded 235 receiving yards against UAB in 1999. It marked only the 18th time a Tech receiver has recorded 200 or more receiving yards in a game.

Creer, Patton Rank Second in the Nation During Week Two

During week two of play this season, Louisiana Tech’s Lennon Creer and Quinton Patton both posted high-number days on Sept. 10 in Tech’s overtime win over Central Arkansas. That weekend, Creer’s 177 rushing yards ranked second in the nation only to Utah State’s 180 rushing yards against Weber State. The Western Athletic Conference, normally known for passing offenses, showed its prowess on the ground that week as Robbie Rouse was fourth in the nation with 169 rushing yards as the WAC posted three of the nation’s top four performances of the week. In addition, Quinton Patton’s 211 receiving yards ranked second in the nation that week. Only Colorado’s Paul Richardson (284 receiving yards vs. Cal) eclipsed Patton’s mark during week two of play.

Twenty-One The Magic Number

Dating back to the 1998 season, history has shown that when the Louisiana Tech offense struggles the team tends to struggle. Since 1998 the Bulldogs have compiled a 4-56 record when scoring less than 21 points. Before the Bulldogs won the 2008 Independence Bowl vs. Northern Illinois 17-10, the last victory for Tech when scoring less than 21 points was in 2003 against Michigan State when the Bulldogs upset the then ranked Spartans, 20-19. Tech added a win to that tally on Sept. 4, 2010 when the Bulldogs defeated Grambling State, 20-6 but dropped a 26-20 overtime decision at Mississippi State on Sept. 24, 2011.

Only five other teams have had 10 or more players record an interception this season and Tech is one of only 10 teams to have eight or more players get a pick. Of those 10 teams, nine are playing in bowl games this postseason. That is notable considering a full one-third of the FBS teams (40 schools) did not even record 10 interceptions this year. Louisiana Tech ended the regular season ranked third in the nation with 20 interceptions.

Sacks Leaders the Reason for Success?

While Louisiana Tech enters the bowl game ranked 34th in the nation in scoring defense, the numbers aren’t exactly the whole truth when looking at Tech’s defensive efforts this season. As a team, Louisiana Tech has allowed 270 points this season (an average of 24.55 points per game) but that number is not wholly on the defense. The Bulldogs have allowed five touchdowns (35 total points) off fumble returns, interception returns and punt returns. Thus, Tech’s defense has only allowed 235 points this season, an average of 19.58 points per game. At that number, Tech’s scoring defense would rank 17th in the country.

Louisiana Tech’s rushing defense has been better than expected so far this year and enters this week’s game ranked 25th in the nation. This is a statistical category where Tech may actually be better than the numbers tell. So far, Tech has faced four teams ranked in the top 55 in rushing (two in the top 25) and the Bulldogs continue to hold those opponents to well below their rushing game average. Louisiana Tech has held 11 of the 12 teams it has played to fewer rushing yards than they were averaging going into the weekend, which is more impressive when considering they have played three teams that are averaging 200 or more rushing yards per game.

Defense Standing Tall On Drives

Entering the bowl game Louisiana Tech’s defense has forced opponents into 197 third-down conversion situations, ranking 10th in the nation (with five teams above Tech having played one more game). Not only is Tech’s defense causing problems for opponents but the Bulldogs are stopping teams on first and second downs, forcing more third down situations. Of the top 20 defenses facing third downs, Louisiana Tech is the only one with a conversion efficiency percentage of less than 35 percent. Overall, Tech’s third down efficiency rate ranks 11th in the nation in first in the WAC and the Bulldogs have forced at least 20 more third down situations than anyone in the top 15 in third down efficiency.

Big Defensive Stands in Key Situations

28

While Louisiana Tech’s special teams unit is usually remarkably good, nobody is perfect. When those mistakes happen on special teams, Tech’s defense has backed them up. So far this season, Tech opponents have started a drive inside the Tech 30 yard line three times but the Bulldogs’ GATA defense has held opponents to a mere 10 points total in those situations. In addition, Ole Miss recovered a fumble on the Tech 41 and was also head to zero points. Opponent Southern Miss Mississippi State San Jose State Ole Miss

Tech Faces Eight Senior QBs in Nine GAmes

When Louisiana Tech hosted San Jose State on Oct. 29, the Bulldogs faced a senior quarterback for the eighth time in nine games. Utah State’s Chuckie Keeton (true freshman) has been the only non-senior signal caller the Bulldogs have faced since Nov. 13, 2010 (at New Mexico State). San Jose State’s offense is guided by senior QB Matt Faulkner. Idaho’s Brian Reeder was just the latest in top-notch senior quarterbacks to face Louisiana Tech this season. Tech opened the year against Southern Miss’ Austin Davis then faced BCS-transfer Nathan Dick, now at Central Arkansas. Houston’s sixth-year senior quartreback Case Keenum faced LA Tech on Sept. 17 followed by Mississippi State’s Chris Relf on Sept. 24. Hawai’i fielded senior Bryant Moniz behind center on Oct. 1.

A Look at the “Dave Clark Five”

Entering this season, Louisiana Tech’s defense will put a stronger emphasis on its Nickel defensive package against the various passheavy offenses it will face. This package could also be called the “Dave Clark Five” as it is led, in part, by redshirt junior Dave Clark. This unit is “Glad All Over” this season “Because” the secondary has looked much improved to date, “Reelin’ and Rockin’” through fall camp. While the offense challenges opponents to “Catch Us If You Can,” the defense is always “At the Scene” dressed in their “Red and Blue.” The pass defense has worked hard “Over and Over” to be much improved in 2011 after a disappointing 2010 season by improving “Bits and Pieces” at a time. The man himself, Dave Clark, says “I Knew It All The Time” that the pass defense would be improved this season. Note: The Dave Clark Five was a British pop group in the 1960s. Everything in quotations is a song title from that group.

Benchmark Set at 300?

Louisiana Tech allowed over 300 yards rushing on Sept. 5, 2009 at Auburn and that standard can be a fairly accurate predictor for the outcome of games. Since 2000, LA Tech is 1-12 when allowing teams to rush for 300-plus yards with the lone win coming over Nevada in 2001. LA Tech has not allowed opponents to post back-to-back 300-yard rushing games since 2000 when Auburn ran for 301 yards on Oct. 21, 2000 and Miami (Fla.) ran for 331 on Oct. 28, 2000.

Allen is only the second player from Louisiana Tech to win a national award, joining Troy Edwards’ 1998 Biletnikoff Award. He was named a finalist for the Ray Guy Award on Nov. 21, the third player in school history to be named a finalist for a national award. Willie Roaf was a 1992 Outland Trophy finalist. A native of Salem, Ore., Allen finished the regular season ranked first in the nation in punts inside the 20 (37) and punts inside the 10 (20) and third in punting average (46.31 yards per punt). He has 29 punts of over 50 yards this season and four of his punts rank in the top 10 in school history. Allen has had only five touchbacks in his 78 total punts and of the 26 punts to be returned by other teams, 11 have been returned for one, zero or negative yards.

Ryan Allen Named Second Team All-American

The Walter Camp Football Foundation has named Louisiana Tech punter Ryan Allen to its All-America second team the organization announced at the Home Depot College Football Awards show on Dec. 8. Allen is the 52nd player in school history to be named to an All-America team and the first punter to receive such an honor. The last Louisiana Tech special teams player to receive All-America honors was kicker Josh Scobee (2001) while the only other special teams player to receive such an honor was Marty Kent (1996). Allen becomes the 52nd player to be named All-America from Louisiana Tech. The last time a LA Tech player received such an honor was tight end Dennis Morris in 2009. He is the sixth Bulldog player to be named All-American since the turn of the century.

Allen Top in the Nation in Punt Placement

Louisiana Tech punter Ryan Allen has quietly established himself as one of the nation’s top punters this season and while his kicking numbers are impressive alone (third in the nation with an average of 46.31 yards per punt), it is the more detailed numbers that start to stand out. Allen is first in the nation with 37 punts (47%) kicked inside the 20 yard line. The Salem, Ore. native has punted 78 times this this season and his impressive hangtime has forced 28 of his punts to be fair caught (36%), he has sent 29 punts (37%) over 50 yards and had the fourth-longest punt in school history on Sept. 24 at Mississippi State with a 72 yard kick. Most impressively, only five of Allen’s punts have gone into the end zone for a touchback showing his remarkable ability to place the ball where he wants it. Allen is also the national leader with 20 punts landing inside the 10 yard line. Rank 1. 2. 3. 4. 6.

Career Updates

Louisiana Tech continues to stake its claim as one of the best return teams in the country and that claim continues into the 2011 season. On Sept. 3 at Southern Miss, Lyle Fitte returned a kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown, the 10th-longest return in school history. That marked the sixth consecutive year that a Louisiana Tech player has returned a kickoff or a punt for a touchdown, the longest streak in the nation. Then on Nov. 26, Craig Johnson returned a punt 86 yards for a touchdown. Prior to the current streak, Louisiana Tech had one of the longest return droughts in the nation, having not returned a kickoff for a touchdown since 1989 and not returned a punt for a touchdown since 1999.

One of the Top Return Teams in the Nation

Under special teams guru Mark Tommerdahl, Louisiana Tech has emerged as one of the top return teams in the country this season. Tech enters the Poinsettia Bowl ranked 48th in the nation in kickoff returns and 28th in the nation in punt returns. The impressive aspect of that stat is Tech continuing to excel in punt returns despite the loss of the team’s top two punt returners on the depth chart to season-ending knee injuries. Lyle Fitte, Andrew Guillot and Ryan Williams are out for the season while Quinton Patton, Richie Casey and Levander Liggins have all been playing through injuries and LA Tech still is among the nation’s best in punt returns and one of the most dangerous special teams units in the country.

LOUISIANA TECH

Head Coach

including passing offense (91st in 2009 to 62nd in 2010) and total offense (66th to 52nd) while the team’s average offensive national rank improved from 65th in 2009 to 54th in 2010. Dykes, son of Texas Tech coaching legend Spike Dykes, has coached in the PAC-10, Southeastern Conference and Big 12 during his 16 years in the college football profession while also serving under some very successful head coaches including Mike Leach and Mike Stoops. He won the 2006 Mike Campbell Top Assistant Award, presented by the All-American Football Foundation, and was a nominee for the 2009 Broyles Award, which goes to the nation’s top assistant coach. Dykes came to Louisiana Tech after completing his third season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Arizona, leading the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and an appearance in the Holiday Bowl. That Holiday Bowl appearance marked Dykes’ 10th bowl appearance as a coach with all 10 appearances coming within an 11 year span. A spread-offense specialist, Dykes’ offensive attack set at least five single-season records at Arizona while also racking up a pile of single-game marks in the UA record book. Former Wildcat quarterback Willie Tuitama, a disciple of Dykes, notched career numbers that are among Arizona’s best. “Coach Dykes has demonstrated throughout his coaching career all the leadership qualifications we are looking for in the next leader for our football program,” said acting athletics director Bruce Van De Velde. “His coaching success has been achieved at the highest level of competition, from the SEC to the Big 12 to the Pac-10.” Rivals.com cited Dykes as one of the countries brightest offensive minds and top ten college recruiters in the country. “I have worked my entire life to get to this point, and I have had lots of great mentors that have worked with me and taught me and brought me along,” said Dykes. “I am very fortunate to be here.” Dykes’ Arizona team went 6-3 in the Pac10 Conference during the 2009 campaign, finished tied for second in the league with Oregon State and Stanford. Fond of the passing attack, Dykes Arizona offense in 2008 ranked 16th in scoring and 33rd in total offense while developing and outstanding run-pass balance. Dykes orchestrated an Arizona offense that was ranked 10th nationally in pass-

ing yards per game in 2007 as he coached then-junior Tuitama to honorable mention AllPac-10 honors that year. That same season, he helped develop the offensive scheme that pushed receiver Mike Thomas to first-team all-league status as a junior and senior (‘08). Prior to his tenure at Arizona, Dykes was co-offensive coordinator working with thenhead coach Mike Leach and inside receivers coach Dana Holgorsen running Texas Tech’s wide-open passing attach in 2005-06 after having been Texas Tech’s wide receivers coach since 2000. The Red Raiders were among the national top six in total offense and passing during the span. Texas Tech was No. 3 in passing and No. 6 in total offense in 2006 under his co-direction, throwing for 370 yards and accumulating nearly 450 overall. He directed an offense that scored 32 points per game in 2006 with two receivers ranked top three in the nation and a third in the top 20 in receptions per game. While in Lubbock, Dykes helped develop Joel Filani into a two-time first team All-Big 12 honoree and a sixth-round NFL draft selection by the Tennessee Titans in 2007. Receiver Jarrett Hicks also signed a free-agent deal with the San Diego Chargers that year. Dykes also worked with quarterback Graham Harrell who completed 412 passes for 4,555 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2006, ranking Texas Tech third nationally in total offense that season. Prior to his five seasons at Texas Tech, Dykes spent two non-consecutive seasons at Kentucky, first coaching tight ends as a graduate assistant in 1997 and then coaching special teams and wide receivers in 1999 under the “Air Raid” attack of former UK coach Hal Mumme. Dykes coached Kentucky’s James Whalen to AP All-America honors after his Division I-A record for receptions by a tight end. Sandwiched in between his two stints in Lexington, Dykes was the wide receivers coach at Northeast Louisiana where he helped receiver Marty Booker set school seas and career records and earn Blue-Gray and Shrine Game spots before getting drafted in the third round by the Chicago Bears in 1999. A 1993 graduate of Texas Tech, Dykes lettered for three years as a baseball player for the Red Raiders. At age 40, Dykes is one of the nation’s youngest coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Dykes is married to the former Kate Golding and they have two daughters, Alta Carolina (Ally) who is three and Charlotte Reese (Charlie) who was born in late spring 2011.

WHAT THEY ARE SONNY SAYING

DYKES Mike Stoops

Head Coach, University of Arizona “Coaches aspire to be head coaches, and it’s a great opportunity at Louisiana Tech for Sonny. He did some awfully good things here, helping change our offense dramatically in his first season and taking it farther each step afterward. He comes from a coaching family and worked in some outstanding offensive systems. I’m eager to see how it goes in Ruston and won’t be surprised if points and yards are one feature for his new program.”

ABOUT

Tom Dienhart

Mack Brown

Head Coach, University of Texas “Sonny Dykes is a perfect fit at LA Tech. His dad, Spike, was one of the best coaches of all time, and Sonny is a chip off the old block. He has a great smile and super personality, but has also become a master of offensive football. He has been able to beat teams with better personnel because of his offensive expertise.”

Ted Miller

ESPN.com Writer “It wasn’t just that Arizona’s offense ranked 115th in the nation the year before Dykes came aboard as offensive coordinator. It was the Wildcats entrenched tradition of lousy offenses. Yet Dykes immediately transformed that beleaguered unit. First, he made it competent. Then he made it good. Then he made it pretty darn scary. It was about more than Xs and Os. It was about leadership and inspiring confidence. You know, stuff good head coaches do.”

Yahoo! Sports/Rivals.com Writer “Sonny Dykes is one of the top offensive minds in college football and has built some dynamic attacks. He also is a tireless worker whose terrific personality makes him a magnetic recruiter. I expect Sonny to have great success.”

Bill Snyder

Head Coach, Kansas State University “If he is anything like his father, and I truly believe he is, he will endear the entire University and its constituency to him. Sonny is an excellent coach and a loyal and caring person.”

KEVIN CURTIS Cornerbacks

Kevin Curtis enters his second season as the cornerbacks coach at Louisiana Tech. In his first season, the Bulldogs tallied 12 interceptions as Ryan Williams led the Tech cornerbacks with two. Curtis joined the LA Tech staff in 2010 after serving two years at Navarro Junior College where he coached the secondary. While at Navarro, Curtis’ teams went 21-2, won two conference championships and were the 2009 C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl champions. Curtis’ teams were ranked first in the country in interceptions and had five all-conference honorees while he recruited the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and West Texas areas. Curtis was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big 12 safety at Texas Tech, playing for the Red Raiders when Dykes was on the Texas Tech staff. After a successful collegiate career, Curtis was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent three seasons. After one year with the Houston Texans, Curtis played two years as the team captain for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe before returning to the United States to coach. “I am very pleased to bring Kevin Curtis on our staff,” Dykes said. “I had an opportunity to work with and get to know him at Texas Tech where he was a great player. Kevin is an outstanding person whom I had the chance to see coach when I recruited the Navarro area and I knew it wouldn’t be long before he was a highly sought-after coach on the Division I level. He is a great recruiter and will be a very strong, positive role model for our players.”

Recruiting Coordinator/Defensive Line

2 0 1 1 B U L L D O G F O O T B A L L B o w l G ui d e

Long-time college coach Stan Eggen begins his fourth season as part of the Louisiana Tech staff and his second as coach of the defensive line. In addition to 28 years of college coaching experience, Eggen has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the country, a reputation that has earned him the recruiting coordinator title beginning in the spring of 2010. Eggen’s first year guiding the defensive line witnessed Matt Broha record a tackle for a loss of 11 of the team’s 12 games in 2010 and vaulted the junior to third in the school’s all-time sacks record with a year still to play. During Eggen’s second season with LA Tech and as coach of the linebackers, he oversaw a unit that ranked 40th in the nation in both pass defense and pass efficiency defense. Linebacker Adrien Cole garnered first team all-WAC honors as he led LA Tech with 93 total tackles, a mark that ranked him 50th in the nation. In his first season with the Bulldogs, Eggen helped coach a defensive unit that ranked 13th nationally against the run, allowing only 103.9 yards per game, the fewest by a Tech team since the program joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1989. Tech also allowed only 23.7 points per game, the best by a Bulldog team since 1992. The Bulldogs also posted a 21-0 shutout over San Jose State during the season, the first shutout by a LA Tech team since 1996 (a span of 148 games). It was also the first road shutout since 1988 (a span of 225 games). The Bulldogs success defensively led the program to the 2008 Independence Bowl title as LA Tech defeated Northern Illinois 17-10, the first bowl victory in more than three decades. Not only did Eggen’s linebackers succeed on the field in 2008, but off the field as well as Harris was named one of 15 National Scholar-Athletes, the first in Louisiana Tech history. Harris was also named a Draddy Award finalist and one of 13 Wuerffel Award finalists. Prior to coming to Ruston, Eggen served as the defensive line coach at Texas A&M under coach Dennis Franchione from 2003-2007. During his time with the Aggies, Texas A&M participated in three bowl games, including the 2005 Cotton Bowl, the 2006 Holiday Bowl and the 2007 Alamo Bowl. Eggen has been named as one of the Top 20 recruiters in the country multiple times by Rivals.com and was named as one of the Top 10 recruiters in the country by Scout.com. Prior to his stint at Texas A&M, Eggen served as the defensive line coach at Alabama under Franchione in both 2001 and 2002. The 2001 Crimson Tide squad participated in the Independence Bowl. He also served under Franchione at TCU (1998-00) and New Mexico (1997) where he worked as the defensive line coach. He helped lead the Horned Frogs to three straight bowl appearances, including the 1998 Sun Bowl and the 1999 and 2000 Mobile Bowl. Eggen was an integral part of helping lead a TCU defense in 2000 that ranked first in scoring defense and first in total defense in the country. Eggen and the Lobos participated in the 1997 Insight.com Bowl. He had two stints at UNLV (1991-92, 1994-96) sandwiched around one year at Nevada in 1993. He was the defensive coordinator at UNLV from 1994 through 1996, gaining valuable experience and helping the Rebels to the 1994 Las Vegas Bowl. Prior to that, he coached at Utah State (1986-90), Drake (1984-85), Memphis (1982-83), Southeast Missouri State (1981) and North Dakota (1979-80). While at Utah State, three of his players that he recruited or coached earned Big West Defensive Player of the Year honors. His postseason resume speaks for itself. He has been a part of nine bowl games. Two of his defensive linemen from the 2007 A&M squad - Red Bryant and Chris Harrington - were selected in the 2008 NFL Draft. Over his last three coaching stops, Eggen has coached more than a dozen defensive lineman who were selected in the NFL Draft and more than a total of 20 who signed NFL contracts. He has mentored the likes of the Tennessee Titans’ Antwan Odom, Green Bay Packers’ Johnny Jolly and Buffalo Bills’ Aaron Schobel. Eggen, a native of Dilworth, Minn., earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Moorhead State (Minn.) in 1977 and his master’s degree in education from North Dakota in 1981. He and his wife, Christina, have three daughters, Sloane, Paige and Shelby. Sloane and Paige are Louisiana Tech students.

TONY FRANKLIN Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks

Tony Franklin joined the Louisiana Tech staff as the offensive coordinator in February 2010, bringing an exciting offensive attack back to Joe Aillet Stadium. In his first year on staff, Tech’s offense exploded into a high octane mechanism in the middle of the season resulting in Tech scoring at least 20 points in six of the last seven games with the team scoring more than 30 points in four of those contests. Franklin joined the LA Tech family after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee. At MTSU, Franklin’s offense generated 421.7 yards and 32.0 points per game, the fourth and seventh highest totals in school history. The Blue Raider offense, which produced three all-Sun Belt Conference players, had 30 or more points nine times and topped the 400-yard mark on eight occasions. Franklin’s 2009 unit set school records in total yards, passing yards, and total points, while finishing 23rd nationally in scoring and 27th in total offense. The end result was a 10-3 season that witnessed a 32-31 win over Maryland early in the season and a year capped off by a 42-32 win over Southern Miss in the New Orleans Bowl, the school’s first bowl in the FBS era. The 10-win season was the most by any Blue Raider team since 1992. Quarterback Dwight Dasher came of age in Franklin’s offensive schemes. Dasher, a second team all-conference performer and MVP of the New Orleans Bowl, ranked 7th in the nation in total offense, threw for a school record 23 TD passes, and was named the SBC Player of the Week three times. Franklin made his way to Middle Tennessee after a brief stint as the offensive coordinator at Auburn in 2008 and the previous two seasons in the same capacity at Troy. In his two seasons at Troy, the Trojans went 16-9 overall and 12-2 in the Sun Belt Conference while collecting two conference championships. During that span his offense scored 30 or more points 11 times, including games against Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma State. In his first season at Troy, in addition to helping the Trojans to their first Sun Belt Conference title and a victory in the New Orleans Bowl, Franklin also helped engineer the second-ranked offensive unit in the Sun Belt just one year after the team ranked last in the league in total offense. The Trojans ranked first in the league in passing offense, again one year after ranking last, despite having faced three of the top 20 ranked passing defense teams in the country during the season, and improved in conference scoring from 12 points to 25 points per game. Franklin joined the University of Kentucky football staff in 1997 following 16 years as a high school football coach. During his four-year tenure at UK, the Wildcats enjoyed unprecedented success on the offensive side of the ball, including setting several NCAA, SEC, and school records. After coaching running backs for three seasons, Franklin was named offensive coordinator for the 2000 season and led the Wildcats to success as the nation’s second-best passing offense as well as the nation’s 11th-best team in total offense. Franklin’s two-back combinations at Kentucky outgained any two-back combinations in the SEC in total yards from scrimmage for three straight seasons. Quarterbacks Tim Couch, Dusty Bonner, and Jared Lorenzen each led the SEC in passing during their time as UKs quarterbacks, and Couch was the first player selected in the 1999 NFL draft. Several other UK players reached their goals in making NFL teams after their experience in the high-powered offense. Franklin was also named one of the top 10 recruiters in the South during his four years at Kentucky as he helped lead the Wildcats to their first back-to-back bowl appearances in 15 years and their first New Year’s Bowl game appearance in 50 seasons. USA Today took notice of Franklin’s football coaching and teaching abilities in a feature story in 2005 which detailed his consulting successes as a nationally sought-after offensive football coach. Franklin also received rave reviews for his second book, Victor’s Victory, which chronicled the tragic death and spectacular life of 15-year-old Hoover High football player Victor Dionte Hill. Hill died from sudden cardiac arrest on the football practice field during one of Franklin’s consulting sessions. The book has helped to continue the mission of Cheryl Hill, Victor’s mother, to make teachers, coaches, and parents aware of the need for automatic external defibrillators (AED’s) in every school and youth organization in Alabama. Franklin achieved both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Murray State University, where he was a two-year starter as a running back. He is married to Laura Franklin, and they have three girls: Chelsea, Caroline, and Caitlin.

Damon Harrington developed a reputation as a fierce competitor during his playing days as a linebacker for Louisiana Tech during the late 1990s. Harrington still has the same hard-nosed reputation among the Bulldog players, but it comes as the head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech. Harrington was hired as the head strength and conditioning coach at Tech in January, 2006, his second stint in the role after he spent the previous two years as the assistant director for player development at Georgia Tech working with all aspects of the Yellow Jackets football strength and conditioning program alongside another former Bulldog coach, Eric Ciano. Before taking the position at Georgia Tech, Harrington served as the head strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech in 2002 and 2003, overseeing a program which serves all 16 of the university’s NCAA sanctioned sports. He also spent two years as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at Louisiana Tech under Ciano in 2000 and 2001. Since returning to his alma mater, Harrington has been instrumental in improving the strength and conditioning program at Louisiana Tech. One of the many improvements during Harrington’s regime has been the implementation of supplements for the Tech student-athletes, including chocolate milk and muscle milk, which helps with the recovery period after workouts. Harrington’s regiment workout program has helped the Bulldog football players break more than 25 strength records (by position) in the last five years and ultimately has helped lead to a number of fourth-quarter come-from-behind wins. Under the direction of Dooley, Harrington and his staff have implemented the Dawg Fight Program, which incorporates ATTITUDE, TEAM, DISCIPLINE, TOUGHNESS and EFFORT. This program is designed to prepare the players to be as physically and mentally tough as possible in order to play hard for four quarters and make the plays at the end of games that will ultimately lead to victory. In the past three seasons, Louisiana Tech has posted five fourth quarter come-from-behind wins. In the four seasons prior, the Bulldogs had posted a total of five fourth quarter come-from-behind wins. Harrington began his playing career at Louisiana Tech as a walk-on to the Bulldog football program in 1995 before earning a scholarship his sophomore season. He started every game at linebacker during his junior and senior seasons, leading the team in tackles both years with 121 in 1998 and 122 in 1999. The Elkton, Md., native earned All-Louisiana honors in 1998 and 1999 while also being named to the All-Independent team by Football News in 1999. Harrington earned his bachelor’s degree from Tech in fitness and wellness in 2000 and completed his master’s degree in sports science in 2002. He is certified by the College Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA). Harrington is married to the former Meg Everett of Alexandria, and the couple have a four-year-old son, Luke, and a two-year-old daughter, Addison.

Long-time Louisiana Tech assistant coach Ed Jackson is now in his fourth year as the Bulldogs assistant strength and conditioning coach and is beginning his 19th season as a part of the Tech staff. Jackson also works with the character education program for the Louisiana Tech athletics department. For years Jackson has been actively involved as the counselor and sponsor for the university’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes and his current role enables him to continue to mold the lives of Tech student-athletes. Jackson played collegiately for Louisiana Tech in the early 1980s, but he never dreamed that a quarter of a century later he would still be a part of the Bulldog program. In addition to his role as the character education coordinator, Jackson will also be working with the team as an assistant strength and conditioning coach. He will be trying to instill the same life lessons he learned as a player at Tech that helped him achieve so many years of success as a player, coach, husband, father and man of strong faith. During his playing days at Tech, Jackson earned All-Southland Conference honors and first team All-Louisiana honors and was a member of the 1977 and 1978 Independence Bowl teams. Jackson played professionally in the NFL for the Oakland Raiders, in the USFL for the Tampa Bay Bandits and Orlando Renegades and in the CFL for the Toronto Argonauts. After his professional playing career ended in 1985, Jackson began his coaching career at Hinds Community College where he served as the defensive line coach from 1987 to 1991 and the defensive coordinator in 1992. During those six years, Jackson coached eventual NFL stars in Leon Lett, Marvin Washington, John Copeland, Pervis Hunt, Grady Jackson and Gary Walker. Jackson returned to his alma mater in 1993 when he was hired by Joe Raymond Peace as the defensive ends coach. After four years at that position, Jackson was promoted prior to the 1997 season to assistant head coach by Bulldog head coach Gary Crowton while also moving to the Tech linebackers. The father of five returned to the Bulldog defensive line in 2000 where he spent the past seven years. During his 16 seasons as a coach at Tech, Jackson helped lead the Bulldog football program into the 21st century, including a trip into the Associated Press Top 25 in 1999 and a Western Athletic Conference championship title and subsequent bowl berth in 2001. Jackson was also a finalist for the 1999 American Football Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year award. He earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Tech in 1983, and his master’s in education administration from Mississippi College in 1989. Jackson has five daughters: Ashley, Adrianna, Andrea, Aisha and Alexis.

Jeff Koonz enters his second year at Louisiana Tech guiding the Bulldog linebacker corps as 2010 saw three of his players finishing the season in the top four on the team in tackles with Adrien Cole earning second team all-WAC honors. He joined the Louisiana Tech family as the Bulldogs linebackers coach after previously serving as a defensive quality control assistant at Texas, helping lead the Longhorns to a Big 12 title and an appearance in the 2009 BCS national championship game against Alabama. “I am really excited to have Jeff [Koonz]] join our staff,” said Dykes. “He comes very highly recommended and has worked under some great defensive-minded coaches like Gene Chizik and Will Muschamp. He brings a lot of knowledge and will be a tremendous asset to the program. He has great experience for a young coach, coming from top programs and learning from successful people.” Prior to his one-year stint at Texas, Koonz was the secondary coach at Iowa State for two seasons under Chizik while also assisting with special teams. Koonz’s year as overseeing the defensive quality control at Texas was his second stint with the Longhorns having previously served as a graduate assistant coach in Austin during the 2005-06 seasons, coaching the linebackers. “What a great opportunity this is to be a part of a wonderful program like Tech’s,” Koonz said. “Coach Dykes’ reputation in the football profession is phenomenal and to be a part of what he is doing at Louisiana Tech is exciting.” Koonz was also a graduate assistant coach at Auburn during the 2004 campaign, coaching the secondary, and was a student assistant coach at Auburn for over a year. Koonz graduated from Auburn in 2004 with a Bachelor’s of science degree in physical education and received his master’s degree in educational administration from Texas in 2006.

Assistant Head Coach/Wide Receivers

2 0 1 1 B U L L D O G F O O T B A L L B o w l G ui d e

Rob Likens enters his second season at Louisiana Tech as an assistant head coach and wide receivers coach. In his first year, Likens oversaw a receiving corps that improved from 91st in the country in 2009 to 62nd in 2010 despite a revolving door at quarterback through the first third of the season. Likens coached Taulib Ikharo to a ninth-place rank in receptions per game among WAC receivers. Prior to joining the Louisiana Tech family, Likens led Central Connecticut State as offensive coordinator to more wins than any other four-year period in school history. Likens coached the Northeast Conference’s top rushing offense for four straight seasons. CCSU’s ground game also ranked in the nation’s top-10 every year during under Likens. The Blue Devils averaged 239.18 yards per game on the ground in 2008. It was the seventh best team effort in the FCS. Central Connecticut also paced the NEC in scoring offense, averaging 30.0 points per game. “Rob is a great addition to our staff,” said Dykes. “I have known him for a while and have wanted to work with him for a long time. He has a great knowledge of the offense we want to install and as a Mississippi native, he brings a tremendous recruiting base, connections and experience.” Likens coached CCSU’s ground game to a ranking in the nation’s top-10 among FCS schools every year during his tenure as well as a winning record in all four seasons, capping off the 2009 season with a 9-3 mark. The CCSU rushing offense was tops among FCS schools in 2006. Under Likens’ guidance, the Blue Devils led the conference in scoring offense in two seasons, had three undefeated home records, averaged just under 30 points per game in four seasons (29.1) and won more games in a four-year span than any collection of teams in school history. Likens coached two 1,000-yard rushers, two Walter Payton finalists and two All-America running backs in Justise Hairston and James Mallory. Likens also coached the school’s all-time leader in passing efficiency (Aubrey Norris, 139.4) and two NEC Offensive Players of the Year in Hairston and Mallory. In all, Likens had 13 all-conference selections in his four seasons. James Mallory earned second team All-NEC honors in 2008. With 1,520 yards, he became the second player in school history to crack the 1,500 mark in rushing. Mallory was also the fourth player to go over 1,000 career rushing yards under Likens. Aubrey Norris, who enters this season as the top-rated passer in program history, also accomplished the feat last season. That duo joins Jo Jo Freeman and Justise Hairston on the list of four. Also under Likens’s tutelage in 2008, Nick Colagiovanni became the program’s 11th receiver to eclipse 1,000 career yards. In 2007, Likens’s offense was number one in total and rushing offense in the Northeast Conference. The Blue Devils posted 387.7 yards per game, including 257.6 yards per game on the ground, ranking 10th in the nation in rushing offense. The Blue Devil offense set numerous school records in 2006, including total yards and rushing yards in a single season. CCSU led the country in rushing yards per game (284.9) and finished 10th in total offense at 386.8 yards per game. As a team, CCSU set a new school mark with 42 rushing touchdowns and scored a school-record 51 touchdowns in 11 games. Likens coached Hairston, the nation’s leading rusher, to AP All-America, AFCA All-America and Sports Network Mid-Major AllAmerica honors.

PETE PEROT Offensive Line

As Pete Perot continues in his third decade on the Louisiana Tech staff, Bulldog fans will be thrilled to see the former NFL player on the sideline once again this fall as the Tech veteran enters his 22nd year in Ruston. Perot’s experience came through in the last two years as the offensive line paved the way for a Tech tailback to record 1,000 rushing yard seasons in consecutive years for the first time since Ryan Moats grabbed the nation’s attention in 2003-04. Lennon Creer’s 1,181 yards in 2010 followed Daniel Porter’s 2009 mark of 1,164 rushing yards as Creer slashed through opposing defenses over the last two-thirds of the season. Perot’s return to the Louisiana Tech sidelines resulted in an offensive line that paved the way for an offense that finished the 2009 season ranked 29th in the nation in rushing and 46th in the country in scoring. Perot’s offensive line also paved the way for Daniel Porter to become the school’s all-time rushing leader with 3,352 career rushing yards as he became only the second player in Tech history to record back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. The long-time fan favorite was able to enjoy the Bulldogs postseason success as he returned to the Tech sideline to coach in the 17-10 Independence Bowl victory over Northern Illinois in late December. Perot returns an experienced offensive line in 2010, including four starters and second team all-WAC left tackle Rob McGill. Perot came to Louisiana Tech in 1986 as a volunteer assistant following an eight-year NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles (1979-84) and New Orleans Saints (1985-86) which was highlighted by his start for the Eagles in Super Bowl XV. In 1988, he was promoted to offensive line coach at Tech where he stayed until he departed for the same position at Southern Miss in 1997. After three years on the Golden Eagles staff, Perot returned to Tech in 2000 where he has been a mainstay on the Bulldog staff. Perot has earned a reputation as one of the top offensive line coaches in the South, tutoring such greats as William Roaf (New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs), Grant Williams (New England Patriots) and Joey Chustz (Jacksonville Jaguars). Under Perot’s tutelage, Roaf earned All-America honors in 1992 and was one of three finalists for the coveted Outland Trophy before being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Saints. The Natchitoches, La., native also coached former Bulldog left guard Aaron Lips, who earned all-WAC honors for three straight seasons while also starting a Tech Division I record 47 straight games. Lips was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List as a senior. During his career at Tech, Perot’s offensive lines have paved the way for the top eight single season rushing performances in Bulldog history, including Ryan Moats’ record-breaking 1,774 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2004, and eight of the top 10 overall. While at Southern Miss, Perot helped the Golden Eagles to three straight bowl appearances where his offensive lines paved the way for three straight 1,000 yard rushing performances (one by Eric Shaw in 1997, and two by Derrick Nix in 1998 and 1999). His 1999 line placed three USM players on the Conference USA All-Freshman team. As a collegiate player, Perot started all four years on the offensive line at Northwestern State before being drafted in the second round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. The father of two also serves as the liaison between the Bulldog football program and NFL scouts. Perot is married to the former Kate Adams of Hodge, La., and the couple has two sons, Joey and Josh. Kate is an admissions counselor at Louisiana Tech and is also a Tech alumna.

Defensive Coordinator/Safeties

2 0 1 1 B U L L D O G F O O T B A L L B o w l G ui d e

Tommy Spangler enters his fifth season as the defensive coordinator and safeties coach at Louisiana Tech and his reputation as one of the college football world’s top defensive minds has only grown over the last few years with the Bulldogs. During that time, Spangler has taken a Bulldog defense that ranked dead last in the country (among FBS programs) in scoring defense, rushing defense and total defense prior to his arrival and coached them into one of the top defensive units in the Western Athletic Conference. His energy and passion for the game and defensive philosophy are the reasons why former Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley hired the veteran coach as the Bulldogs defensive coordinator and why, upon Sonny Dykes’ arrival there was no better defensive coordinator to be found. Spangler’s safeties accounted for five of the team’s interceptions with Chad Boyd leading the way with four picks returned for 75 yards. His defensive game plan held Navy’s impressive triple option run game to under 300 yards for the second consecutive season. Prior to Spangler’s arrival on campus, Tech ranked dead last in the country in total defense (483.33 ypg) and scoring defense (41.7 ppg) and nextto-last in rushing defense (225.38 ypg) in 2006. However, under Spangler’s guidance, the Bulldog defense has made huge strides and propelled the program to the 2008 Independence Bowl title. In 2008, the Bulldogs allowed only 103.9 yards per game on the ground, the best since the program joined the FBS in 1989 and an improvement of over 120 yards per game in only two years. Tech ranked 13th nationally in rushing defense and did not allow a single 100-yard rusher the entire season. Tech also allowed only 23.7 points per game, the best by a Bulldog team since 1992. It was an improvement of 18.0 points per game in the past two years. The Bulldogs also posted a 21-0 shutout over San Jose State during the season, the first shutout by a LA Tech team since 1996 (a span of 148 games). It was also the first road shutout since 1988 (a span of 225 games). In his first two years at Tech, six Bulldog defenders earned all-WAC honors including safety Antonio Baker, a two-time first team honoree. The 48-year-old Spangler spent the past two decades as a full-time coach on the college football sideline where he served the first 10 years at Georgia Southern, helping lead the program to a pair of Division I-AA national titles. He spent 10 seasons at Division II Presbyterian College in Clinton, S.C., where he served as the head coach from 2001-2006. In 2006, Spangler’s defense at Presbyterian ranked first in the South Atlantic Conference in scoring defense (13.2 ppg) and total defense (233.5 ypg) en route to a 7-4 record. In 2005, he led Presbyterian to a 10-2 mark, the South Atlantic Conference title and the school’s first appearance ever in the NCAA Division II playoffs, earning him the league’s Coach of the Year Award. He also garnered two American Football Coaches Association Region 2 Coach of the Year Awards while at Presbyterian. His Presbyterian defenses were ranked in the top half of the South Atlantic Conference in all defensive categories each of his last eight seasons there, and his 1998 Blue Hose unit forced an incredible 48 turnovers in 11 games and ranked first nationally in turnover margin (+2.27). After taking the job as the secondary coach at Georgia Southern in 1987, Spangler was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 1990 and then took over the sole reins of the program’s defense in 1992. The Stone Mountain, Ga., native earned the Southern Conference Defensive Coach of the Year Award in 1993 as the Eagles won the league title and advanced to the playoffs. His defense ranked sixth nationally in scoring defense. Spangler played defensive back at the University of Georgia from 1979 through 1982 and was a member of the 1980 Division I National Championship team that defeated Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl. He lettered his senior season helping Georgia to the 1982 Southeastern Conference title, the program’s third straight. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Georgia in the spring of 1984. Spangler is married to the former Kim Pierce of Ft. White, Fla., and they are the parents of three children: Pierce, Peyton, and Gracie.

MARK TOMMERDAHL Special Teams Coordinator/Inside Receivers

Louisiana Tech landed one of the top assistant coaches in the South when long-time special teams coach Mark Tommerdahl joined the Bulldog staff in 2009. Coaching the inside receivers and serving as the special teams coordinator, Tommerdahl came to LA Tech with more than two decades of Division I coaching experience serving as an assistant coach on some of the top programs in the country. He has served as an assistant coach on 12 bowl teams as well as five league champions and two division champions. His experience and game-planning on special teams helped Phillip Livas tie an NCAA record in 2010 with the return specialist’s eighth career return for a touchdown. Livas ended his career with four punt returns and four kickoff returns for a score. Tommerdahl’s coaching helped Dennis Morris garner all-America honors as well as being named the Tight End of the Year by the College Football Performance Awards. Morris finished his senior year at LA Tech with 38 catches for 623 yards and he had a national-leading 12 receiving touchdowns among tight ends in 2009. Prior to spending the 2008 season at UL-Monroe, Tommerdahl served as the tight end and special teams coach at Texas A&M for five years. During his tenure with the Aggies, Tommerdahl helped lead the program to the Cotton Bowl (2004), the Holiday Bowl (2006) and the Alamo Bowl (2007). He coached present-day Dallas Cowboys tight end Marcellus Bennett, who ended his Texas A&M career as the program’s all-time positional leader in receptions and yards. Tommerdahl’s special teams units in College Station were also among the nation’s best, ranking in the Top 20 in the nation in net punting 2006 (14th) and in 2007 (5th) and in kick-off returns in 2003 (10th), 2006 (2nd), and 2007 (20th). The Alabama Crimson Tide were fortunate enough to land Tommerdahl’s services during the 2001 and 2002 seasons as he served as the program’s tight ends and special teams coach. He helped the Crimson Tide to the 2001 Independence Bowl and the 2002 SEC West Division title. Tommerdahl also served as the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator during stints at TCU (1998-2000), New Mexico (1997) and Minnesota (1995-96) where he coached a Lou Groza finalist at all three schools. TCU’s kickoff return units were ranked No. 1 in the nation in back-to-back seasons while his special teams units ranked No. 1 in the league in three of four statistical categories. In 1997 at New Mexico, four of the Lobos special teams units were ranked in the top 20 in the country as the team won the WAC Mountain Division title. The Fergus Falls, Minnesota native began his collegiate coaching career in 1984 as a graduate assistant at Wyoming where he spent the next 11 seasons serving in numerous capacities including the tight ends coach, offensive coordinator and backfield coach. He helped lead the Cowboys to four bowl appearances and three WAC titles. Tommerdahl earned his bachelor’s degree in business and physical education from Concordia College in 1983 and his master’s degree in business administration from Wyoming in 1986. He is married to the former Annette Jondahl.

LOUISIANA TECH

How Next Year Turned Into This Year

2011 UNIVERSITY In Review

By: Teddy Allen

Since the ball is shaped funny and some of the players are teenagers and few things except gravity are exact science anyway, odd things will happen now and then in college football. Take the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs of 2011. They are playing like the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs of 2012, the team that’s not even a team yet. But when they get to be a team, with key players returning with a year’s more experience and with a schedule that doesn’t feature games against All Three Big Mississippi Schools away, plus three of the final four games on the road, they’re supposed to be sort of good. “I wouldn’t want to play us,” said their coach, who is Sonny Dykes and who also coaches - what are the odds? - the ‘11 team! In just his second year in Ruston, with a brutally front-loaded and back-loaded schedule and only 18 months of recruiting under his belt, Dykes and his charges waltzed into September with a resume few feared. Consider: - Just four starters back on each side of the ball; - Picked to finish fourth in the Western Athletic Conference - and that’s with Boise State now in the Mountain West - and picked 90-something in the nation; - That road schedule; - A severe lack of experience at quarterback, something that can cause problems on a pass-happy offense, sort of like a wet fuse can cause problems on a stick of dynamite. In other words, the Bulldogs did not appear to be the FBS answer to the Green Bay Packers. But you know, it was just the weirdest thing... To start with, there was that Strange September. Once the dust cleared and you could see what had actually happened, any reasonable person would declare Tech could have been 4-0. Or 0-4. What the Bulldogs were was 1-3. In the opener, Tech nearly upset Southern Miss, a 12-point favorite, in Hattiesburg. Lost in a tropical storm, 19-17. Then an overtime win at home against FCS opponent Central Arkansas, a 48-42 shootout. Whew. Then a 35-34 loss to 7-point favorite Houston at home - Tech had led 34-7 - and a 26-20 loss, again in overtime, in Starkville to Mississippi State, an 18.5-point favorite. Chew on all that a second. Southern Miss and Houston would both be ranked in the Top 20 by November and Tech lost to both by a total of three points. And to the SEC’s State in OT. Strange. Tech played brilliantly in all three at times, only to shoot itself in the cleat with late turnovers in scoring position in all three. But then the WAC season opened. At home! And Tech was favored! -- and lost, 44-26, laying an egg as big as four footballs. Maybe it was in part due to the emotional toll of an unforgiving September and three losses by a total of nine points. Whatever, the Bulldogs fell hard to a feast-or-famine Hawai’i team that would eventually limp into late November at 5-5 overall and 3-3 in the WAC. This was not particularly encouraging, seeing as how Tech’s record was now 1-4, with five of the next six games on the road. So of course, Tech rattled off seven wins in a row, spoiling two homecomings and winning their own (in Joe Aillet Stadium against San Jose State.) More importantly, Tech won the Western Athletic Conference title, outright, the Bulldogs first WAC championship since 2001. From 1-4 quicksand to 8-4 and the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego. Not a bad two months’ work. Seven straight wins. First time Tech had done that since 1973-74. All this despite plane trips and injured knees and the emotional baggage of three tight September losses. In a special twist, the Bulldogs became bowl eligible in a Southeastern Conference stadium, whipping Ole Miss like a tied-up goat, 27-7 (and it could have been worse) in Oxford.

Two of the seven were in serious fourth-quarter doubt, the first at Utah State. True freshman quarterback Nick Isham hit the bench late with a bruised shoulder and junior Colby Cameron came on to help guide Tech to 10 fourth-quarter points while the defense, devoted to the cause all afternoon, made a key stop late. Much more antsy was the contest in Reno, where Nevada, 5-0 in the WAC at the time, held a 20-3 fourth-quarter lead and all the cards. Tech’s offense had gained roughly the length of your arm all afternoon before turning into football’s version of the Harlem Globetrotters - with 21 points in the finals 10 minutes. Oh, it was a deal, all right, and nothing about it was easy. Cameron passed for 237 yards in the fourth as Tech strung together touchdown drives of 84, 89 and 92 yards and took a 24-20 lead with 1:42 left. It ended that way, with Bulldogs pouring onto the field and both the clock and Nevada’s chances expiring as Tech senior linebacker Adrien Cole sacked the Wolfpack QB to end the improbable comeback and set Tech up for one more regular season test. The Bulldogs passed. Tech 44, New Mexico State 0. On a rainy November night in Aillet Stadium, the Bulldogs blanked the Aggies and accepted a trip to sunny San Diego for the Dec. 21 bowl. In retrospect, the winning streak started when the turnovers stopped. When the turnover situation turned around, so did Tech’s season. Tech climbed from 1-4 to 8-4 by playing three turnover-free games. Tech returned five INTs and an opponent’s fumble for touchdowns during the stretch. And there were other factors too. Like the punting of Ryan Allen, a Ray Guy Award winner who consistently flipped the field with his knack for getting the ball in position to be downed within the 20 yard line, something he was best in the nation in doing through 12 games (37 of 78 times.) Or like the defense, which allowed no rusher 100 yards in 10 of Tech’s 12 games and which was one of the nation’s best in making offenses earn their way: Tech ranked 12th in the nation in third-down efficiency and, of the nation’s top 20 teams in third-down efficiency, first in third downs defended with 197. There was the offensive line, a quintet that seldom rested. The dependable and deep defensive line that was a major cause of Tech’s WAC-high 20 interceptions, ranking a mere third in the nation. And somewhere in here was a team toughness and road-warrior mentality that solidified even as the Bulldogs lost a safety, fullback, kick returner and punt returner to season-ending injuries. At Oxford, Tech at one point had in its offensive backfield three players, and only one of them was on scholarship. By mid-October, Tech had found the confidence and ability to throw the ball downfield: half of its passes of 20 yards or more - 19 of 38 - came in the final five games of its sevengame win streak. The Bulldogs were 10-1 against the spread, 2-0 against homecoming road crowds and, at Fresno State and Ole Miss, emptied out stadiums by early in the fourth quarter. A team that most people figured to win six games at the most - present company included - has left fans scratching their heads for all sorts of reasons. It’s been a team that’s been sometimes frustrating to watch but that’s been mostly fun to watch, and easy to root for. They seem to pull for each other and to play for each other. And it’s not over yet.

LOUISIANA TECH Louisiana Tech 48, Central Arkansas 42 (OT)

Sept. 3 at Hattiesburg, Miss.

Sept. 10 at Ruston, La.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Danny Hrapmann’s 49-yard field goal with 2:32 to play lifted Southern Miss to a 19-17 win over Louisiana Tech before 22,356 rain-soaked fans at Roberts Stadium Saturday night. After the Bulldogs (0-1) took a 17-13 lead midway through the fourth quarter on a one-yard plunge by Lennon Creer, Southern Miss took its next two possessions inside LA Tech territory where it converted on a pair of field goals - one by Corey Acosta and the game-winner by Hrappman. Tech had two final chances but turned it over on downs around midfield with just over two minutes to play and then ran out of time with the ball inside USM territory to end the game.

RUSTON, La. - Lennon Creer ran for 177 yards on 32 carries, including the winning touchdown in overtime, as Louisiana Tech outlasted Central Arkansas 48-42 Saturday night. After a 42-42 tie in regulation, Central Arkansas got the ball first, but its drive stalled and Adrien Cole blocked Eddie Camara’s 39-yard field goal attempt. When the Bulldogs (1-1) took over, Creer burst 23 yards on the first play to the Bears’ 2-yard line, and he scored from the 1 two plays later. Louisiana Tech took a 35-20 third-quarter lead on a 12-yard run by Creer, but Central Arkansas (1-1) tied it on Nathan Dick’s touchdown passes of 43 yards to Dominique Croom and 56 yards to Jesse Grandy. Central Arkansas’ Jerre McKnight ran a fumble back 73 yards for a 42-35 lead with 2:08 left, but the Bulldogs drove 72 yards to tie it on Ray Holley’s 7-yard run with 58 seconds left.

RUSTON, La. - Patrick Edwards’ 32-yard touchdown reception with 1:36 to play capped a furious second half rally as Houston defeated Louisiana Tech 35-34 before 24,642 fans at Joe Aillet Stadium Saturday night. Edwards leaping catch in the back of the north endzone capped an 84-yard, six play drive as Houston (3-0) scored the final 28 points of the game. Tech took a 34-7 lead on Ray Holley’s seven-yard run with just over five minutes to play in the third quarter, before the Cougars scored four straight touchdowns. Tech (1-2) had one final chance to retake the lead but Lennon Creer was stopped just short on a fourth down play at the Bulldogs 37-yard line with just under a minute to play as Houston ran the final seconds off the game clock while a sea of blue streamed out of the Joe Aillet Stadium gates in shock.

With 4:54 to play, Utah State punter Tyler Bennett dropped the snap and was called for an illegal punt after kicking the ball off the ground. That gave the Bulldogs the ball on the 10-yard line and led to Matt Nelson’s 25-yard field goal. Chuckie Keeton threw for 128 yards and rushed for a touchdown for the Aggies (2-5, 0-2), who have led going into the fourth quarter in every game this season. Terry Carter returned an interception 22 yards for a TD early in the second half to give Louisiana Tech a 14-10 lead. It was Keeton’s first intercepted pass this year. The Aggies averaged 298 yards rushing per game (sixth in the nation) coming into the contest but was held to 49 yards in the first half and 166 for the game. Turbin ran for 81 yards and a touchdown.

LOUISIANA TECH Louisiana Tech 41, Fresno State 21

Louisiana Tech 27, Ole Miss 7

FRESNO, Calif. - Colby Cameron passed for a career-high 376 yards and four touchdowns, two of them to Quinton Patton, as Louisiana Tech throttled Fresno State 41-21 on Saturday night. Lennon Creer added 113 rushing yards and a touchdown as Louisiana Tech (5-4, 4-1) stayed alive in the Western Athletic Conference title hunt with its fourth straight victory. Myles White had 130 receiving yards on just two catches, including a 75-yard down touchdown that gave Louisiana Tech a 24-point lead in the second quarter. It was Louisiana Tech’s fifth straight road win in conference play. Robbie Rouse had 96 rushing yards for Fresno State (3-6, 2-2) against the team he torched for 286 yards on 42 carries a year ago. Devon Wylie caught 13 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown.

OXFORD, Miss. - Chad Boyd and Javontay Crowe scored defensive touchdowns and Matt Nelson added a pair of field goals, helping Louisiana Tech rally for a 27-7 win Saturday night over Mississippi. Boyd scooped up a mishandled backfield exchange and raced 33 yards for a third-quarter touchdown while Crowe’s 26-yard interception return in the fourth helped the Bulldogs erase a 7-0 deficit. Nelson added field goals of 43 and 35 yards. The win was the fifth straight for Louisiana Tech (6-4), which defeated a Southeastern Conference team for the first time since beating Mississippi State 22-14 in 2008. Louisiana Tech led 10-7 at halftime, tying the game on a 21-yard touchdown pass from Colby Cameron to Taulib Ikharo and a 43-yard field goal by Nelson on the first half’s final play. Hunter Lee rushed for 127 yards on 24 carries as the Bulldogs rolled up 350 total yards. Cameron finished 13 of 27 for 180 yards while Quinton Patton and Ikharo finished with three receptions apiece. Adrien Cole led the Louisiana Tech defense with 10 tackles, including two for loss.

LOUISIANA TECH Louisiana Tech 24, Nevada 20

Louisiana Tech 44, New Mexico State 0

RENO, Nev. - Colby Cameron passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns and Louisiana Tech stunned Nevada 24-20 on Saturday. Cameron’s 8-yard touchdown pass to Taulib Ikharo with 51 seconds left completed the comeback in which the Bulldogs (7-4, 5-1 WAC) faced a 20-3 fourth-quarter deficit. Cameron also had a 14-yard touchdown pass to Myles White and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Quinton Patton in the fourth quarter. Cameron finished 25 of 45 passing for 355 yards, including 237 yards in the fourth quarter. Cody Fajardo rushed for 110 yards and passed for 212 and a touchdown for Nevada (6-4, 4-1), which could have clinched at least a share of the WAC title with a victory.

RUSTON, La. - It was a fitting end to a championship run. Louisiana Tech’s defense recorded its first shutout at home since the mid-1990s, the Bulldog offense used a balanced attack led by walk-on running back Hunter Lee and the special teams unit added a score of its own as Tech blanked New Mexico State 44-0 Saturday afternoon under rain-soaked conditions at Joe Aillet Stadium. With the win, Tech (8-4, 6-1 WAC) won the Western Athletic Conference regular season title for the first time since 2001 and earned a trip to the San Diego Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21 to face either TCU or Boise State. Heading into the day tied with Nevada in the league standings, Tech’s lopsided win parlayed with the Wolf Pack’s 21-17 loss at Utah State gave the Bulldogs the outright league championship belt. Following the final gun, WAC Commissioner Karl Benson presented the championship trophy to the team while Poinsettia Bowl Chairman Bruce Binkowsky extended the invite to the postseason game in San Diego.

SHREVEPORT, La. - It’s no surprise that Louisiana Tech turned to its defense and special teams against Northern Illinois Sunday night at the 33rd Independence Bowl at Independence Stadium. Those units were instrumental all season in leading head coach Derek Dooley and Co. to its first postseason appearance since 2001 and only its third since the program joined the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1989. On Sunday night in Shreveport, once again, they came through leading Tech to a 17-10 win over the Huskies. Phillip Livas, the offensive MVP of the game, got the game started for Tech with a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter and then the Bulldogs defense stiffened the rest of the way. After allowing a NIU touchdown on only its second possession, the Tech defensive unit limited the Huskies to three points over the final three quarters of play. Senior defensive back Weldon Brown, playing before a home crowd -- Brown prepped at Bossier High School -- , earned defensive MVP honors after recording a career-high 14 tackles, one fumble recovery, one interception and a key pass breakup on a NIU fourth down play early in the game. Northern Illinois jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on an 8-yard pass from Chandler Harnish to fullback Kyle Skarb with 1:56 to play in the first quarter. The play culminated an 11-play drive covering 69 yards in 1:56. The lead was short-lived as “Saturday Night” Livas took the ensuing kickoff, ran straight up the middle before veering left towards the Bulldog sideline and raced 97 yards for a touchdown. It was Livas’ second career kickoff return for a touchdown and the sixth longest in Bulldog history. Livas, who also has two punt returns for scores this season, now has four returns for scores in his career, the second most trailing only Larry Anderson with five. The kickoff return was the second longest in Indy Bowl history and the first since Duece McAllister returned one for Ole Miss against Texas Tech in 1998. After a three-and-out by NIU on its next possession, the Bulldogs took a 14-7 lead on an 11-yard Daniel Porter touchdown run with 13:41 to play in the second quarter. The touchdown, which came on a draw play on second and goal, capped a 5-play, 42-yard drive over 2:04. After another 3-and-out by NIU, Tech appeared to have threatened again when senior Patrick Jackson took a handoff and raced over 50 yards inside the Huskies 10-yard line but a holding penalty negated the play. After a failed third down attempt brought up a fourth down and seven, Tech attempted a fake punt but Quin Harris was tackled a foot short of the line to gain as NIU took over on the Tech 46-yard line. The game remained 14-7 but the Bulldogs had a golden opportunity to take a bigger lead into the half when Weldon Brown recovered a fumbled punt return by the Huskies with only 36 seconds remaining in the half. However, after three straight incompletions by Ross Jenkins, Brad Oestriecher had a 41-yard field goal attempt partially blocked by Jake Coffman as the Bulldogs entered the halftime locker room leading by a touchdown. Oestriecher redeemed himself early it the third quarter as the Bulldogs marched 49 yards on eight plays and took a 17-7 lead on a 33-yard field goal at the 11:54 mark. NIU answered on its ensuing possession as the Huskies drove 66 yards on 10 plays and connected on a 20-yard field goal by Mike Salerno. The big play for NIU during the drive was a third down completion from Harnish to Marcus Perez that covered 40 yards and gave the Huskies the ball on the Tech 8-yard line. However, little did anyone know that would be the last of the scoring for either team. Over the last five offensive possessions of the game for NIU, the Tech defense held the Huskies to only 103 yards and NIU ventured past midfield only once -- the Bulldogs defense held on a fourth-down-and-five play on its own 46 yard line with less than two minutes to play. The Bulldogs on the other hand had a couple of opportunities to add on to their total as Patrick Jackson fumbled inside the NIU 15-yard line after a 34-yard gain on a screen pass from Ross Jenkins midway through the fourth quarter. Tech also failed to capitalize after Brown intercepted Harnish at the Huskies 37-yard line with 6:25 to play. The Bulldogs lost five yards on their three offensive plays and were forced to punt. The eight wins is the most by a Bulldog team since the 1999 Tech squad posted an 8-3 mark and the bowl win was the first since the 1977 Independence Bowl.

BOISE, Idaho - Four third-quarter touchdowns, including two Woody Dantzler scoring passes, were too much for Louisiana Tech to overcome, as the Clemson Tigers downed the Bulldogs 49-24 in the 2001 Crucial. com Humanitarian Bowl before 23,472 fans at Bronco Stadium Dec. 31, 2001. Trailing only 14-10 at the half, Tech failed to find an answer for Dantzler and company in the third quarter. Dantzler, who finished the afternoon completing 15 of 23 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns, found running back Bernard Rambert for perhaps the game’s biggest play early in the second half. Leading 21-10, Rambert caught a short pass out of the backfield on third down, and after appearing to be stopped short, spun out of the arms of four Bulldog tacklers and raced 62 yards down the sideline to give Clemson a 28-10 advantage. The play seemed to take all of the life out of the Bulldogs. A Rambert 21-yard touchdown scamper, followed by an Airese Currie 19-yard jaunt, increased the Tiger lead to 42-10 heading into the final stanza. The loss of All-WAC selections Bobby Gray and Jamie Nichols to first half injuries added to the Bulldogs’ defensive difficulties. After holding Clemson to only 14 points and 207 yards in the first half, the injury-riddled Bulldogs’ defense allowed 35 points and 341 yards in the second stanza. Two Bulldog touchdowns in the fourth quarter, a 34-yard Luke McCown pass to Delwyn Daigre and a Joe Smith two-yard plunge, closed the gap to 49-24. However, Clemson wasn’t satisfied with the score. The Tigers drove down the field in the final three minutes and instead of running out the clock, attempted a pass into the end zone with under 30 seconds left before also attempting to run the ball in from the one-yard line on the game’s final play. Tech took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter on a Josh Scobee 29-yard field goal on the Bulldogs’ first possession. Clemson scored the game’s first touchdown when Dantzler found tight end Mike Bailey from 10 yards out for a 7-3 lead with 5:48 remaining in the first quarter. The Bulldogs retook the lead at 10-7 when McCown raced in from 11 yards away midway through the second quarter. However, a 15-yard penalty against Tech on the extra point allowed Clemson great field position on its next drive. Two plays later, Dantzler threw his second touchdown pass of the game and Clemson took a 14-10 advantage into the locker room. One of the bright spots for Tech was the play of Daigre, who earned the most valuable player of the game award for the Bulldogs. Daigre caught 10 passes for 178 yards and one touchdown in his final game. Despite the disappointing loss, the Bulldogs finished their season 7-5, including the program’s first Western Athletic Conference title.

SHREVEPORT, La. - An Independence Bowl record crowd of 48,325 showed up to see Louisiana Tech and Maryland battle to a 34-34 tie in one of the most exciting games of the bowl season. Chris Boniol’s 29-yard field goal as time expired gave the Bulldogs the tie. Louisiana Tech, participating in its first bowl game since joining the Division I-A ranks prior to the 1989 season, fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter as Maryland running back Troy Jackson scored on a one-yard run and a two-yard run. However, the Bulldogs would not let the predominantly Louisiana Tech crowd down as they fought back to tie the game at 14-14 at the half. Tech’s first touchdown came with 8:30 remaining in the second quarter on a five-yard Michael Richardson run, and Boniol’s extra point made the score 14-7 Terps. Head coach Joe Raymond Peace’s team tied the game with only 0:17 remaining in the first half on a three-yard Jason Davis touchdown run as the two teams entered their respective locker rooms tied at 14. Louisiana Tech came out in the second half and quickly took a 21-14 lead on a Richardson one-yard run. Jackson scored his third touchdown of the game for Maryland, but the extra point failed as Tech led 21-20. The Bulldogs upped their advantage to 28-20 when Gene Johnson hooked up with Bobby Slaughter on a sevenyard scoring toss. A Boniol field goal gave Tech a 31-20 lead. Maryland scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to pull ahead 34-31, the last coming with only 0:52 remaining on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Scott Zolak to Barry Johnson on a fourth down play. Lorenzo Baker returned the ensuing kickoff 41 yards to the Terps 39-yard line setting up the final Boniol heroics. Richardson (81 yards, two scores) and Davis (72 yards, one score) led Tech’s ground attack, while Johnson and Sam Hughes combined to complete 11 of 17 passes for 115 yards and one score.

SHREVEPORT, La. - Tech’s return trip to the Independence Bowl was quite different from the first as East Carolina defeated the Bulldogs 35-13. The Pirates forced four fumbles and intercepted Bulldogs quarterback Eric Barkley three times en route to the victory. ECU took control of the game early, scoring twice in the first quarter. The Pirates pushed their lead to 21-0 on a touchdown run early in the second quarter. The Bulldogs answered less than two minutes later with a 32-yard touchdown strike. Tech cut the lead to 21-10 with a 36-yard field goal less than a minute before the end of the half. The second half was virtually all East Carolina. Swilley booted another 36-yard field goal six minutes into the third quarter, but that was the end of the offensive night for the Bulldogs. Pirate running back Theodore Sutton raced 45 yards for a touchdown with just under seven minutes remaining in the quarter. The Pirates sealed the victory with another touchdown late in the game. ECU rolled up 278 yards rushing on the night, while holding the Bulldogs to only 12 yards on the ground.

SHREVEPORT, La. - Tech used a high-powered passing attack and a stingy defense to defeat the favored University of Louisville, 24-14, in the school’s first Division I bowl game appearance. Bulldog sophomore quarterback Keith Thibodeaux was named the game’s most valuable player, completing 19 of 39 passes for 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Cardinals looked to take control of the game early when safety Kevin Miller returned a Bulldog punt 60 yards for the game’s first touchdown less than two minutes into the contest. However, that was the end of the road for Louisville as Thibodeaux proceeded to pick apart the Cardinal secondary. The Opelousas native drove the Bulldogs 68 yards to paydirt, tying the score. Running back Charlie Lewis capped the drive, punching it in from one yard out. Later in the first quarter Thibodeaux hooked up with receiver George Pree for a 41-yard scoring strike to give the Bulldogs a 13-7 lead. Tech never looked back, pushing its lead to 21-7 late in the first when Thibodeaux connected with tight end Larry McCartney from eight yards out and Lewis added the two-point conversion. Tech added a 21-yard Keith Swilley field goal in the second quarter. Louisville tried to climb back into the game in the third, scoring on a 13-yard run by Miller midway through the quarter. However, that was all the Bulldogs would allow. Tech forced three fumbles, an interception and held the Cardinals to only 11 first downs. The Louisville offense could muster only 100 yards rushing and an astonishing 61 yards through the air.
